MSI GE Series GE70 Apache Pro-061 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i5 4200H (2.8GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great gaming performance, 60fps in CSGO on maxed settings, as well as 60fps in DayZ SD, and JustCause 2 (VSYNC Enabled).
Great design
Backlit keyboard is cool
Nice keyboard design
Lots of USB ports for easy connections
Turbo Fan button for gaming sessions
Simple to change backlit keyboard settings
1080p screen is crisp and clear
Temps stay below 85 (C) w/o cooler, could be better
Great packaging
CPU is able to handle a lot of multitasking; Again, could be better (i5!)

Cons: Mild bloatware
Webcam
Gets hot, but still at decent running temps
Slow 5400 rpm hard drive
Loud fan
i5 Processor, recommend getting i7 model.

Other Thoughts: After 3 days with the laptop, I can say certainly that it was a good buy. It competes with other cheaper gaming laptops, such as Lenovo's y510p with SLI, Everything functioned perfectly out of the box. Only complaints is that the webcam is pretty bad, but I personally will not be using it so it doesn't affect me.

I definitely recommend getting a laptop cooler - this beast hovers around 40 Degrees Celsius when browsing, and can get up to a toasty 83 degrees (Currently my highest temp) when under load. You have to turn the turbo fan on, otherwise it could get to an uncomfortable 90 degrees. When turbo fan is on, it gets pretty loud, but it does make a difference of up to 15 degrees.

If you can afford it, get this beast. It looks amazing (With the brushed aluminum), and performs like a similarly priced desktop. However, if you can afford it, you should get the i7 model. The extra two cores will serve you well; this can multitask well, but i7 would of course be better.

Plus, remember Windows 8. It takes a lot of getting used to, but its worth it in the end.

Good luck on your laptop-seeking journey!

(PS: Yes, this comes with the 860m 2GB, i5-4200h, and Killer LAN networking)
